KMo1 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

A really unique gift for someone who already has everything. A lovely reminder of the things that happened in the 1950's - the adverts especially made us all chuckle. A good buy!

Kimbells Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

The 60's Decade Book was brilliant! Very well presented and the recipient loved it. Thank you.

Snowbird Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

What on earth do you buy for a ruby wedding anniversary gift for relatives ? They don't NEED anything. They don't do ornaments or trinkets with any sentimental messages on them. Tricky !I solved the problem with this great gift. Their wedding was in 1976 so they both could share their memories of the whole decade together. Perfect, and different.Thank you.

The book is made to a very high standard and is overall a fantastic gift to give to my parent. I have already recommended it to my friends.

Katie26 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I purchased this book for my grandads 70th birthday. I purchased it on the Saturday afternoon which was bank holiday weekend and received it first thing Thursday Morning. It's well worth the money, very thick, beautifully presented with a personalised name, a unique gift. Looking forward to my grandad opening it and reminiscing over hours of reading. Will definitely purchase again for other family members.

Of the highest quality, unique and fantastic value. A gift that will be treasured for many years.

Hells Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Brilliant - so many things we remembered and lots of ads that were in the papers we had forgotten about. It was great! So much fun to read and good memories and the usual disagreements over the world events of the time but that's what made it interesting!.

very happy with the unicorn poo book! It was a gift for a 7 year old who has found great enjoyment with her new book. Lots of things to look out for and having her name to find on each page has made it all the more special. Very happy over-all

When I first tried to place my order…

When I first tried to place my order for Swallows and Amazon personalised hardback the website would not allow me to enter my message. I telephoned and was told by a very helpful lady who I think her name was Sandra told me it was a technical problem and she would get back to me when it was resolved. I was amazed that at 9am the next morning she called me to say all was now fixed.The customer service was great and when the book was received it was really good quality. Very impressed and would recommend.

Promises of delivery date..completely…

Promises of delivery date..completely wrong and not so helpful folk. Product...much, much smaller and thinner than I had believed. Not sure I would repeat my experience with company.

Lisa jane Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Not great

To be honest I was slightly let down... the book basically has my nieces name on the front of the book and that's it! I thought her name would have been involved in the story?! €28 is alot of money for something I could have done myself!

cjack Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 Sep 2020

Nicely presented book.

The book was presented very nicely and looks very engaging. There were two pronoun errors in the text but given that it took a while to arrive, I don't have time for an exchange before the date I intend to present the book. The receiver is not at an age where he will be bothered around pronouns too much but likely to be delighted to see himself and his beloved dog in the story. It would be good if there were a range of different adventures to choose from.

The service given and the final product…

The service provided and the final product were both fantastic. Having made an inputting error (wrong year!) at the point of order, the error was picked up, queried and corrected by a member of the In The Book team, before going to print. My parents were simply delighted with the finished product; they described it as beautifully presented, a trip down memory lane and a real keep sake to share with friends and family. Thank you In The Book.

The Haynes guide for Pensioners…

The Haynes guide for Pensioners dedicated to Arthur was a huge hit! His thank you card about it read that he had started out with chuckles and giggles but it became laugh out loud funny once he had claimed it from the rest of the family!
